Physical Literacy

Canadian Sport for Life is a movement to improve the quality of sport and physical activity in Canada. CS4L links sport, education, recreation and health and aligns community, provincial and national programming

Active for Life is the place where parents go to learn about how to make a difference in the health and happiness of their children.

  • Preparing progressions and regressions for every game you play is important! This will allow children to be challenged in a way that is fun and engaging! Try and think of progressions (ways to make the game harder) and regressions (ways to make the games easier) for each activity listed in this resource!
